Item by Jim Bishop

meador.gifThe intersection of spirituality and health is the focus of the next Suter Science Seminar to be held at Eastern Mennonite University.
Dr. Keith G. Meador, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and co-director of the Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health at Duke University Medical Center, will address the topic at 4 p.m. on Oct. 26, in the Suter Science Center auditorium (S-106).
Meador, who is also a senior fellow in theology and health at Duke Divinity School, will examine the theological implications of current conversations on “spirituality and health in a therapeutic culture” and possibilities for further development of the dialog.
Dr. Beryl H. Brubaker, EMU provost, and Dr. Ted Grimsrud, associate professor of religion at EMU, will give responses to the presentation. Admission to the seminar, which is co-sponsored by the Shenandoah Anabaptist Science Society, is free. Refreshments will be served 15 minutes prior to the start of the program.
